shadowcircle: a pentesting distribution alternative

This talk would be about explaining what the shadowcircle project is:

  • why was it created.
  • what is the philosophy behind this project.
  • what are you concretely able to do with the integrated tools.
  • why is it better than other similar solution (backtrack)
  • Final words : we need contributors to side projects in order to replace some non FOS software.
a Demo would also be performed : a vulnerabilities check on remote host ( implies 2 pc, provided by the speaker ) + exploit with specific payload.

shadowcircle is a free GNU/Linux Live CD distribution which was specially crafted for penetration testers.

Forked from backtrack, this distribution aims to:

  • Remove any peace of non free software that was initially the backtrack packages base, and replace them by FOS equivalents.
  • Bring more documentation about the integrated tools.
  • Integrate cutting-edge security tools that are not yet available in similar distributions.
